APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS

TAG uses a naturalistic ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) approach to our therapy programs. While we use an ABA approach, our programs emphasize the child/teen’s development of intrinsic motivation, self-awareness, problem solving, personal goal setting, and personal empowerment.

ABA therapy can help 

  • Increase language and communication skills
  • Improve attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics
  • Decrease problem behaviors

What do TAG ABA Programs Look Like?

Our programs use a naturalistic approach in which activities such as art, music, cooking, games, gardening, sports, crafts, nature, play and/or community outings are used as a framework to target a wide range of goal areas in the domains of Social-Relationship Skills, Communication, Behavior, Independence, and Self-Care.

Parent Involvement is Essential

At TAG we believe a collaborative approach between clinicians and parents is essential. We value that each parent is the expert of their child and we seek to combine our clinical knowledge with the parent’s knowledge of their child to develop a unique, one-of-a kind program that fosters their child’s success. This is especially important when supporting behavior regulation as our team desires to be sensitive to the family’s culture and beliefs when designing positive behavior support plans.

We request that parents participate in ongoing parent training sessions a minimum of one time per month and up to four times per month. Parent training takes place in the form of one-to-one parent training sessions where the supervisor teaches concepts and strategies, guides discussions, and problem solves current challenges and obstacles. Additionally, parent training may involve overlapping with the supervisor and tutor during a therapy session in which the parents receive hands on training while participating in engaging activities with their child.

How does ABA Therapy work?

Applied Behavior Analysis involves many techniques for understanding and changing behavior. ABA is a flexible treatment:

– Can be adapted to meet the needs of each unique person

 – Provided in many different locations including at home, school, and in the community

– Teaches skills that are useful in everyday life

– Can involve one-to-one teaching or group instruction

Good ABA programs for autism are not “one size fits all.” ABA should not be viewed as a canned set of drills. Rather, each program is written to meet the needs of the individual learner.
